    Sea Glass Indian Artifact? Perhaps even a Garnet?

    Hello All!

    New today as a excited member but usually a weekly reader!

    My husband and I are leisure artifact hunters (not so much finders ) and stumbled upon these today in an area of what seams to be a "campground and/or quarry site" covered with chert and flint.

    I have below the pictures of what we found with a few notations under some of them.

    Thank you all so much for your future help!

    The the 3 very light blue tint pieces are all roughly 1cm thick and they don't taste salty, they don't stick to the tongue, they don't float and they do scratch a penny. These 3 also seems to have knapping on the edges.

    I took a picture quickly of just these 3 when they were wet so if you need a better picture please let me know.

    Could this be a garnet?

    The top left photo in this particular collage hopefully shows the iridescence at the point

    Interesting items. It will help with identification if you can give us the general area where they were found. You can add that to your " profile, " too.

    I can't put my "finger" on it but I feel oddly offended when I look at this one.
